President Rides Segway...

Nice to know we have a president who can stay on his feet. Ok, so he didn't look all that graceful in the process, but at least he kept his balance! :) I've got to admit, I'd really like to ride one of these things just to see what it's like.

Arriving at the family's oceanside estate, the younger Bush quickly shed the suit and tie for casual wear, grabbed a tennis racket and whacked an orange ball for dog Spot to fetch. The president was still clutching the racket when he boarded a Segway, a standup, motorized scooter that resembles a push lawnmower.

The Segway went down on Bush's first attempt, but he stayed on his feet with a flying leap over the machine. Undeterred, he got on again. His father climbed on a second Segway and they cruised around the driveway at the estate at Walker's Point.

Thanks to Robi for the link. :)
